Python tool not sending field names to rest of workflow

Asteroid

Hi Community,

 

I am making an API call with the python tool. I am able to export a dataframe to Tableau no problem.

 

I can't do any data manipulation though, because the field names are not showing up in other tools.

 

See below:

browse tool loads 121 fields

Select tool results window shows 121 fields

Select tool configuration window shows 0 fields

Auto Field shows 0 fields available for selection

 

Is there a way I can cache the data between the python tool and Auto Field tool?

@nakamott It seems very manual and tedious, but perhaps you can write the metadata out using the method that @PaulN showed here: https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Knowledge-Base/How-To-Manage-Metadata-in-the-Python-tool/ta...
